Banana French Toast w/ Blueberry Topping
Cook Light, Eat Right - Pillsbury
A mouth watering blueberry topping compliments the banana flavor in this low-cholesterol home-style French toast. Baking makes it possible to prepare all the slices at once.
3/4 c. skim milk
3/4 c. (1 medium) ripe banana, sliced
2 egg whites
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
8 slices whole wheat bread
1 T. cornstarch
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. water
2 T. honey
2 c. fresh or frozen blueberries
Heat oven to 425º. Coat a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a blender or food processor, combine the first 4 ingredients. Blend until smooth. Pour into a shallow bowl. Dip bread slices in egg mixture; place in sprayed pan. Pour any remaining mixture over bread slices. Bake for 12 minutes. Turn and bake an additional 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Topping: In a small saucepan, combine the first 4 ingredients; blend well. Stir in blueberries. Cook over medium heat until mixture boils and thickens; stirring constantly. Serve over French toast.
